Our water temperature is up to around 93 degrees, and it is supposed to be even hotter here over the next few days so I imagine the pool temperature is going to keep going up. I've seen people talk about fountains to cool the water and about using jets.
I only have one return to my pool (I think that is the same thing as a jet). If I turn that up to create a fountain like effect I would lose my circulation in my pool, right? So this is not a good idea? Same problem if I do buy some type of fountain that hooks into the return?
Also, I have had problems keeping the pH down I believe because of the aeration caused by us swimming. I wore a mask yesterday and noticed thousands of little bubbles under the water. We keep our heads under water most of the time in the pool. I have used a lot of muriatic acid, and I'm afraid aerating the water even more with a fountain will cause me to have an even harder time keeping the pH under control. Is this right?
So, is there any other inexpensive, easy option to cooling the pool? I don't have the skills or time to run piping under ground to cool off the water (or whatever it was I read when I searched this topic). So any suggestions? Thanks as always for your great advice!
